Consider supporting Golden Age through your Required Minimum Distribution plan

If you are 70 and ½ or over and you have investments, you are required to take part of your income yearly via a minimum distribution or RMD. Ask your tax or investment advisor about how to distribute RMD funds to a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Our tax ID # is 23-7273105. Distributions should be sent to the Golden Age Foundation, P.O. Box 2369, Seal Beach, CA 90740.

Honor Someone Special with a Commemoration or Memorial  

A unique and meaningful way of honoring friends and family on the special occasions in their life’s journey is commemorating that event with a donation in their honor to the Golden Age Foundation. Not only will those celebrating their birthday, anniversary, holiday or other important day be honored but they will share in the knowledge that they have played a part in providing vital services to our community.

To express your condolences to friends and family on the death of a loved one consider making a memorial donation to the Golden Age Foundation in his or her memory. This is a warm and loving way to honor the deceased person and a meaningful way to assist in continuing the programs that support our community.

An acknowledgement card will be sent to the person honored by your commemorative donation or to the family for a memorial donation. The Foundation’s tax ID # is 23-7273105

Please send commemorative or memorial contributions to: The Golden Age Foundation, P.O. Box 2369. Seal Beach, CA 90740
